South Carolina has a wealth of quality running backs. They have an All-American in Marcus Lattimore, but they have to utilize the other four starting caliber guys in order to keep Lattimore healthy.
Kenny Miles decided to return. He was 2009's starting runner and was extremely effective in 2011.
Brandon Wilds proved to be an SEC starter in 2011, starting in Lattimore's place due to a wide range of injuries, including a big one to last year's number two back Shon Carson, who the coaches still think could be the heir apparent to the workhorse running back.
Finally, Mike Davis, the highly sought after freshman runner is now in the fold.
They must decide how to use all of these backs (minus Davis if he red-shirts).
Lattimore still gets the heavy burden with Shon Carson getting used all over the field. Kenny Miles and Brandon Wilds will share backing carries and any short yardage areas that Lattimore may need a breather for.
